Gray Tasmania, Australia
Lost 26.5 pounds 
On the 27th of August 2001 I began a 30 day juice fast. I didnt actually plan to do 30 days, it seemed impossible to even think of. I just began and thought Id see where it went.

The fast was trouble free and relatively easy so I just kept going.  On day 27 of the fast my family decided to climb a local mountain, I thought it would be a challenge and to my joy I made it to the top and down, a task previously impossible, there was some pain but not as much as expected.  The knees were being healed as never before!

By the end of the fast I was feeling a new man and had lost 26.5 lbs, my pain was gone, I was feeling 10 years younger and really enjoying a healthier diet, so I decided to stay with it.

Breast Feeding 
During Fasting?

Excerpt from 


Freedomyou has received numerous questions from from mother's who want to juice fast while their infants are breast feeding.
There are two main concerns that need to be addressed. 

Will the baby be hurt by the increased release of toxins? 
Fasting increases toxins in the mothers milk.  To what amount we do not know.  There is no research on toxin release into mother's milk during a fast.  What we do know is that traces of antibiotics, steroids and other milk production enhancing drugs are found in cow's milk.  Whatever is in the blood ends up in the milk in trace amount.  A good reason not to feed babies cow's milk instead of breast milk.  

The filtering organs do a wonderful job and most of the toxins end are passed from the body but a certain amount will enter the milk. It that enough to harm a baby?  During water fasting, the body is dumping toxins at the quickest  rate possible.  During juice fasting the rate is much slower.  And if you drink lots of juice and even supplement the juice with some mango slices or banana the amount of toxins being released will be small especially if you have fasted before. 


Is the baby getting enough nutrients? 
The healing that occurs during a juice fast is due to the combination of cleansing and the body being flooded with nutrients and living enzymes.  It is possible to get a balanced full range of nutrients during a juice fast by adding a few tablespoons of essential oils to the veggie juice mixtures. (Udo's Choice found in health food store)  For a high quality protein, blend a handful of almonds into a nut milk.  Now you have a system for maximum nutrition and minimum toxin release for breast feeding a baby. But there is another question that needs to be answered. What about friends and family?


Why be labeled insane.

Friend and family will think you are mad.  The word will spread that you are a crazy heretic who does not care about her child. And that is unwise.  They will not even want to understand.  All your pleading for understanding and logic will fall on deaf ears.  We will look bad for even mentioning it. 


The solution.

Where there is a will there is a way and you and your baby will both be blessed with the joy of health. 


  1. Drink juice daily. 

  2. Make nut milks and drink two glasses per day.

  3. Powder some nuts and add them to the salad or add some tuna.

  4. Take essential oils 2-3 tablespoons per day. Make a salad dressing with it.

  5. Eat one small salad with several vegetables to get a wide spectrum of nutrients. 

  6. Occasionally do a juice day once a week where you have nothing but juice.  


Send us some feedback.  It would be so encourage to others to see pictures and hear stories of health bright-eyed children raised in this way.
